    Amazing Planner

    Finding Amani Affairs was one of the best things we ever did. Jihan made the stressful process much easier. Amani Affairs treated us like one of her family members. She was willing to answer questions at 1 in the morning sometimes. Amani Affairs made our wedding the best wedding ever! I would recommend her to anyone and everyone.

    Awesome Wedding planner

    Jihan was fast in response time , and recognized areas I needed help on, when I didn't know. She was very personal and understood what I was looking for in a wedding !

    Working with Amani affairs for a recent anniversary party was a total delight! Jihan knew exactly what she wanted and was organized to the minute with details that we needed in order to provide the most beautiful and appropriate florals. I would highly recommend Amani Affairs for weddings, rehearsal dinners, anniversary parties and all other events! June Sweeny, Beautiful Flowers by June
